This historical society focuses on the North Fork of Long Island. It maintains more than a dozen buildings in Southold Township, ranging from 1750 to 1900. These include the Long Print Shop & Downs Carriage Shop, a working print shop built in 1842 that houses a restored Linotype machine.

Other notable buildings include a blacksmith shop, icehouse, school and the Victorian-style Joseph N. Hallock/Ann Currie-Bell House. A farm equipment shed houses a collection of historic farm equipment. The organization also manages the Horton Point Lighthouse. The collections mostly cover the period after the Revolutionary War.
